      I was talking to my boyfriend about this thread. It was actually a pretty serious conversation. Suddenly, he started laughing histerically. I asked him what on earth he was laughing about. Through his gasps and giggles he finally said "Im just picturing you driving your tractor with no bra on.".

      It was pretty funny. I think farm work will require a bra of the sports variety, same with going to work. But, I have found myself stripping the thing as soon as I get in for the night thanks to this thread.

        Also, I'm very skeptical of the idea that bras lead to cancer due to restriction of lymph flow. The interpretation of research seems quite dodgy. For the sake of argument, I'll grant that 24-hour bra use is correlated with increased breast cancer. But it didn't take long to find a counterargument that overweight women are far more likely to wear bras that amount of time. Guess what being overweight is correlated with? Breast cancer. So all in all, this seems like the sort of argument that reinterprets correlation as causation. Also, a NYTimes article (which I understand might be rightly taken with a grain of salt) states that women with lymph nodes removed from the chest area don't have higher rates of breast cancer.
        If you look at maps by country, or by state, of breast cancer, diabetes, and obesity rates, you're going to see some correlation. I did not find a map for bra-wearing.

        Men can get breast cancer too. Is it genetic? Or is it something in the water? (or the Super Big Gulp?)

          Ouch! Is it the fabric, or is your skin sensitive there?
          "I think the basic anti-aging diet is also the best diet for prevention and treatment of diabetes, scleroderma, and the various "connective tissue diseases." This would emphasize high protein, low unsaturated fats, low iron, and high antioxidant consumption, with a moderate or low starch consumption.

          In practice, this means that a major part of the diet should be milk, cheese, eggs, shellfish, fruits and coconut oil, with vitamin E and salt as the safest supplements."

You might actually be a 32C but just haven't found a brand of bra that is the right shape for you. This is a chart that compares underwire width between brands (although it's geared toward larger cup sizes): http://i.imgur.com/2UVzC.png

            Also, have you tried non-padded/molded bras? Seamed bras are the bomb and have a little more give for the fit.

            Last piece of advice: if you are serious about a good-fitting bra, suck it up and go to Nordstrom or the equivalent. The sales associates there know what they are doing and know a lot about how their products fit. The bras are expensive, but can last for years.
            Wow, thanks for that link! Interesting that all those companies have different widths for their wires...

            Maybe I should try a 30C. Or I could just continue letting my lady friends do their own thing

              Yep. I just can't do it. It is soooo uncomfortable. Sleep braless, sure - but then they are flopping to the side so not so much rubbing. But normal clothing and braless is just too painful. Dressing gown for an hour or so only works because I wrap it tightly and don't move much while I am eating breakfast. Anything else, I need that protection.

              As for the whole get the right size thing, I can't be bothered. Seriously, I weigh two kilo's less than I did four days ago -and the girls sit differently. That water will go back on in a few days time, not to mention the longer term weight changes. I am not going to play around with bra's every day to work out what to wear. I normally only buy a new bra if I haven't got enough to last to washday.

                I think it's both? I get chafing on only one side, and only for certain t-shirts. Some cotton fabrics just feel rough, so it feels uncomfortable when I'm wearing it around the house without a bra on

                  Maybe one of your boobs is a little bigger than the other?

                  I have heard of men putting band aids on their nipples when running long distances.

                    I have seen male runners with bloodied shirts from chaffed nipples - awful sight................

                          Those things are very popular around here with all the runners/cyclists and such.
                          This area of FL is a huge training area... lots of sore nipples! LOL

                          A lot of ladies use them under the sheer/light colored summer fabrics too, because braless is nice but can sometimes be a little too revealing in some tops. Those things make the nips sort of invisible... if you buy the good ones.
                          The cheap-o ones ($3-$5) not so much. They are just that. Cheap. They don't have the really thin tapered edges or the skin like texture to the silicone surface... not such a good "invisible" effect. But sufficient for just a cover if you just want to prevent chaffing and aren't worried about the looks.

                            • Three reasons I will continue to wear a bra in public: 1) jiggle; 2) bounce; 3) sway. Like I said earlier, quite a lewd effect.

                              If you follow the first link you get another article about the study. Here's a quotation that should make everyone pause and think about the applicability of the study: "All the women involved in the study were aged between 18 and 35, although the professor was keen to stress that the group were not a representative of the global population of females."

                              • A little late to the conversation....I wear a 36A and at almost 58, I do sag a little so I wear a bra most of the time. What I really hate about going braless is sweat collecting underneath. I hate the feel of sticky sweat in the creases. A bra I wear quite a bit and is comfortable - almost like wearing nothing is Barely There by Bali Comfort Revolution Microfiber Crop Top | CVWEB
